Rated 4 out of 5Â by Jixo Outdoor sump pump installation
I installed an outdoor sump pump and needed a basin with no inlet holes and a cover that would be strong and would not allow debris to enter the sump basin. This basin is very sturdy and, having no inlet holes, it allowed me to cut out a hole just where I needed it. I bought the cover and was disappointed that the enclosed screws were not long enough to reach the basin's threaded mounts and had to be replaced with longer ones. In addition, the oblong opening allowed debris to enter the basin, and it was not strong enough to place much weight on. I solved all of my problems by buying a second cover and four 1Â½ inch screws, and then placed both covers on the basin with the openings 180Âº opposed to one another. This resulted in a strong cover with a small 2Â½"x2Â½" square opening in the center for the discharge pipe. I ran the pump's electric cord between the two lids so it would not get wet until it had completely exited the basin. I am now very satisfied with my sump pump installation and would recommend this basin and cover to anyone with similar concerns.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by SumpPumpAmature Item not exactly as pictured/described
Very well built/structured, but there is a 5 inch hole in the side (which is not in the product description). My application did not need the hole (I will need to seal if I don't return it). No problem for me but the molded vertical lip supports on the side are much larger than depicted. I'm not sure what basin this is a picture of, but it's not what you are buying (see my pic of what you get)

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Stick Heavy built, the only kind I would use
Purchased mine in April 2013. It has no wholes in it at all which allowed me to put them in where I want and the size I need. This is extremely sturdy and well made. for the money it is very good. Has bolt holes on top to fasten down lid.

High strength, nicely built. Be careful when sizing. there are supports under top edge that may affect how the basin sits in an opening.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by chazdee Sump pump basin
This basin was not as deep as I expected which means the pump runs a little more often which translates to money but I suspect it's negligible. But maybe not to everyone. The basin appears to be made for a specific lid but I looked all over the net and can't find it. The lid from Home depot didn't fit and I sent it back but I had another one which will work but not made for this basin. Other than that, it is made of that really tough plastic like they make benches out of, so it should hold up well.
